If you like Trading Card Games you need to look at Infinity Wars. As an avid fan of Star Wars Galaxies TCG, Magic the Gathering Online and Might and Magic Duel of Champions I gotta say Infinity Wras comes in close as my new second favorite on this list.
The most important reasons why I recommend this game in short:
- You get a ♥♥♥♥ ton of cards just for playing and fullfilling achievements (called Quests in the game).
- You can actually buy booster packs and decks with the ingame currency you get rewarded after each match (never seen that in a TCG before). So you can theoretically completely free load on this game and just play your way to a good deck.
- The most rewarding PvP format (Rift Runs) is played using a draft deck the plaer puts together from random cards drawn by the game. Thus it isn't P2W.
- Turns are made simultaniously and hidden, which adds a nice layer of bluffing and calling bluffs to the game, which I haven't seen in other TCGs before.
- Each faction has it's own specific uses and strategies. Making fun combinations of up to three factions makes for a lot of fun deck possibilities.
Like SWTCG Infinity Wars has etremely nice AI challenges:
You start out with some turorial missions that introduce you to the important gameplay elements of the game.
That is best followed b the academy challenges that introduce you to some advanced strategies and gameplay elements in the form of pretty tough endgames that require you to find the right combination of playing your cards in order to win within or survive that one turn.
Then there are the faction specific campaigns, that give you the back story of each faction, introduce you into it's dominant strategies and reward you with a nice starting stock of cards that belong to that faction.
With those crads you can put together your first own decks and test them against AI opponents in five difficulties.
The only thing missing are 4 player vs. AI missions like SWGTCG did.
The core of the game like in any TCG is PvP play though:
In "Normal" mode you can look for games in four different deck formats:
- "Core": Only cards from original Infiinty Wars factions can be used (no promo stuff like the Star Trek cards)
- "Infinite": Any card can be used in the deck
- "Merged": Any card allowed. Before the game starts both player's decks are combined and shuffled together, so both play with the eact same cards.
- "Pauper": Only common and uncommon cards.
In "Ranked" matches you play a best of three against another player with a deck.
In "Rift Runs" you put together a deck from random cards presented by the game. The cards are drawn from the collection of all cards that are in the game. Then ou play matches against other Rift Runners until you lost 3 times. The more matches you play the better rewards you get at the end of the run. And on top you can buy the whole deck you used for the run, the price get's lower the more matches you won on the Rift Run.
